with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.

The holidays are upon us! (DUH.) With the holidays comes a whole lot of presents, whether you are giving or receiving. There are wish lists and Santa letters and hints from your spouse, oh my! Oh, and those stockings to fill.
I got stuck in the big city a month ago due to a collapsing overpass (yes, really) and spent my evening there starting our Christmas shopping. Two weeks ago, my husband spent a day in the big city crossing the rest of the items of of our shopping list. Nieces and nephews? Done! In-laws of all sorts? Done! Presents for ME? Done! Last weekend, I broke my eldest son out of school so that we could have some one-on-one time, and that included spending some time in the big city shopping for Christmas presents for his Dad.
All that to say, we take equal responsibility for the Christmas shopping. We try to do it together, when we can, but sometimes we tag team it.
Who buys the presents in your family?
